Northern View from the St. Charles Bastion of Castillo de San Marcos

This photograph was taken from the northeast bastion (St. Charles Bastion) of Castillo de San Marcos. The Matanzas River can be seen to the right. The different levels of the fort are apparent: the moat is closest to the fort's main walls and barely visible on the left side of the photo; the covered way is beyond the moat; the glacis is beyond the covered way. Fort Mose, site of the first legally sanctioned free African settlement, is located a few miles north of Castillo de San Marcos, although it cannot be seen in the photo.
